    Pcad Prehistory

    I've been doing this a long time. A very long time. Photo is c. 1991, note the down tube shifters and fuzzy legs. You're looking at Pcad before he was Pcad. Started my business a few months after this photo was taken. I think. Who the eff can remember back that far?

    Here's a photo of Pcad and Mrs. Pcad at an MS150 ride from the (very) early 1990's. Note the dark hair.



    And here is Young PcadŽ in my car sales days @ the Mercedes store.

    Those are Time shoes kid. I think they were the first carbon soled road shoes. They had velcro and everything. State of the 1990 art.

    That was a Spectrum (made by Merlin) Ti road bike. It cracked in two places a few years later. I left the frame out with the trash.

    It depends on how much you talk to yourself.

    Last picture is from '87-'88 or so? Red power tie with tiny paisleys. I had that tie too. And one in yellow.

    Ti is supposed to be like for life or something. Only Carbon cracks and explodes!

    C. 1989-1990. When men were men and Mercedes didn't have electrical problems.

    Gray hair in the early 30s? That helps explain your current speeds.
